From the Back Cover:

Prevention is PRIMARY

At a time of unprecedented challenges and opportunities for public health, Prevention Is Primary provides models, methods, and approaches for building health and equity in communities. Written in accessible and understandable language, this comprehensive book includes the theory, concepts, and models needed to harness social justice and practice primary prevention of unnecessary illness and injury in the first place.

Prevention Is Primary, written by associates of the nationally renowned Prevention Institute, is a theory-to-practice book for students, faculty practitioners, and community leaders who want to take a proactive stance against the most pressing health problems in the community, including asthma, tobacco, violence, HIV, poor nutrition and physical inactivity, health disparities, and environmental injustice. The volume provides a comprehensive and practical understanding of prevention on a community level. The authors define the elements of comprehensive, quality prevention efforts—from the necessary partnerships that need to be developed to the training, vision, and policies that go into successful efforts.

Leaders in the field of prevention contributed to this volume. They offer step-by-step approaches to action in community organizing, fostering resilience, media advocacy, food security, working within diversity, the built environment, environmental justice, and evaluating prevention efforts. Prevention Is Primary contains illustrative case studies of community involvement around these and other contemporary issues including:

  • Health equity and social justice
  • Personal and community resilience

  • Coalition building

  • Chronic disease prevention

  • HIV intervention beyond behavior change

  • Gender, health, and prevention

  • Public health advocacy

  • The power of local communities

  • Public health and criminal justice

Designed to be user friendly, each chapter in the book contains sidebars that put the chapter in context by including information about heroic prevention leaders and groundbreaking prevention successes. The sidebars underscore the application of prevention principles by a variety of professionals and disciplines in a wide range of health and human service settings.
